Sickass in a positive sense!
I have not posted any DJ tech items in a while, but I just came across this new system by Denon SC5000 Prime ($1900 ea.), and I am pretty mesmerized with the interface and its nocturnal friendly design. It departs a bit from the typical CDJ fixture in terms of midi functionality, still maintains the feel of playing on a tangible platter, but still looks and behaves like a CDJ. The color scheme screams out welcome to the future, and the mixer keeps it simple, although I do like my channel faders a little f u r t h e r apart. The screen is what does it; seven inches, I mean, what more could you want to roll with more without a laptop? I have always admired Denon quality, and I think this will infiltrate most clubs and high-end DJ setups in the years to come.
Watch the video, but be prepared, the price tag is ginormous… ($5K)
